  • 1
    Sprinkle chicken with about half of the jerk seasoning; toss gently to coat. Cut any large pea pods in half crosswise.
  • 2
    Alternately thread chicken, pea pods, pineapple cubes, and sweet pepper pieces onto 4 long or 8 short metal skewers, * leaving 1/4-inch spaces between pieces. Spray kabobs with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 3
    For sauce: In a small saucepan, combine remaining jerk seasoning and the spreadable fruit. Cook and stir just until spreadable fruit is melted; set aside.
  • 4
    For a charcoal grill, place kabobs on the rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 8 to 12 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are crisp-tender, turning once and brushing occasionally with sauce during the last 3 minutes of grilling.

    *If using wooden skewers, soak in enough water to cover for at least 1 hour before using.
